A funny mix of Real Time Strategy and Survival games : Your goal is to manage a group of survivors against zombies.

You play sessions on a virtual gaming table with a parametric and randomly generated map.

How to play

For each session of the game, the player have to keep a certain amount of humans alive during a determined number of days.
You have to protect your base camp too. If, it's destroyed by the zombies, you lost the game.
As soon as a zombie touches a survivor, it is infected and will soon turn into a living dead.

You don't direct the survivors but perform out actions and make strategic choices by clicking on the terrain tiles.

A good starting point consists to collect a lot of wood and build your barracks inside the camp. Find out where the zombies come from and install traps wisely.
In addition to the traps, only the defenders can kill the zombies, so think about placing them inside or around the camp.
Quickly, survivors will have some needs, so you have to go and look for new resources.

Game features

  • Build your camp (shelter, infirmary and canteen)
  • Manage your resources and the survivors needs
  • Day and Night cycle (some actions are forbidden during night)

For each new release the price will grow a little bit (final price: 5.00€), so buy now in early access to support the development then you will have free updates until final release (and forever).

  • That's all !

Hi Wabby.

First off , interesting game and thank you for supporting Linux.

I do have a few issues with my survivors being killed very easy when they go scavenging for supplies. Some die from the touch of a single zombie , others poke several zombies and walk back to base. Could you implement a health bar or mechanism for survivors to fight/flee ?

I hope I am not missing anything obvious.

Hello razing32 and thanks for your interest !
In general, as soon as a survivor is hitten by a zombie, he becomes infected... and dies. Only "Defenders" can fight against Z (by shooting them), the other survivors always flee if they're too close to a Z. When collecting supplies, if you don't use the pickup, your "explorers" are vulnerable and zombies can infect them when they are inside a building. So sending some "Defenders" beside the explorated building or using the pickup is a good idea :-) Anyway, because the game is not yet finished, I'm always looking for bugs, thanks for your post... I will analyze the behavior of explorers.

Glad to see that there are still people using python for game development.


Bought the game after trying the demo. Played my first game and they all had some sad face or something and then the survivors wouldn't do anything at all. How do I fix this?!

Read the player guide, the "Inside the camp" section to understand more. This is not a bug, only a bad luck game :-) The difficulty parameters are adjusted in each releases.

Ok, I get that. I have another question, since I have survivors just sitting there by the stock pile, is there at least a way to get more? If not, is there a way to get the idle ones to be useful?

I really don't understand this game or what I'm supposed to do, but I won somehow.... I don't get why I can't make more survivors or go beyond the camp. I also don't get why they stop doing stuff. I bought the game so I guess I'll wait for futher developement.

Hello, in Survive the Zombies you don't direct the survivors but perform out actions and make strategic choices by clicking on the terrain tiles.
With the new Alpha 0.9 version, the player guide is updated too. I hope it helps to understand the game better.

how i can get updates?

When a new version is released, you have to download and extract it on your computer. There is no auto update system in the game.

I really like the game and I hope that you keep working on it, so that it turns into a great game!

Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it. The next release is coming very soon :-)

Wabby's Land in the future this game will be Free to Play?
Seeing that far too money is unlikely will ever Free to Play.

Low price but not free and as it's mentioned in the game presentation : For each new release the price will grow a little bit, so buy now in early access to support the development then you will have free updates until final release. Thanks for your interest, I hope you enjoy the game.

By free updates till final release, does this or does it not include the final?
